DORSET COUNCIL has made a Notice under Section 14 [2] of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984 as amended.
All vehicles will be prohibited from proceeding along Longham Bridge, Longham, a distance of approximately 100 metres. The Notice is needed in order to
comply with health and safety regulations which require the provision of safe working areas and to minimise the likelihood of danger to highway users.

be completed by 06th October 2021.
This Notice will enable Dorset Council to carry out geotechnical investigation work.
Please note that the dates are a window of opportunity and the road may not be closed for the whole duration stated above and the works are weather
